The Gazprom Neft filling station network has begun the full-scale implementation of modern energy-efficiency technologies throughout its filling stations, with upgraded and modernised equipment at more than 600 outlets already increasing facilities’ energy efficiency by up to 50%.
Deploying heat-recovery ventilation (HRV) systems throughout its filling stations means
A pilot project involving an automated engineering system at Gazprom Neft filling stations has also confirmed energy-efficiency savings of up to 29%. This system analyses the ambient temperature and the number of visitors at filling station premises, and determines the optimum metrics for air condition and ventilation, or heating.
Infrastructure renovation throughout Gazprom Neft filling stations also includes the replacement of lighting equipment — the service life of new energy-efficient LED lighting being 10 times higher than other artificial lighting systems. Better energy efficiency is also being delivered through the use of light-sensitive sensors that regulate station lighting depending on the time of day.
“Responsible business practices, and using modern environmental technologies in sustainable development, are strategic priorities for the Gazprom Neft filling station network. We expect to invest more than RUB200 million on improving energy efficiency throughout all our filling stations by 2023.”Alexander Krylov Head of the Gazprom Neft Regional Sales Directorate
In addition to its energy-efficiency improvement programme, the Gazprom Neft filling station network is also undertaking environmental initiatives in the collection and safe disposal of car tyres. More than 600 tonnes of tyre casings have been collected and sent for recycling during this campaign, resulting in the production of enough rubber granules to provide safe ground cover for more than 360,000 square metres of sports facilities.
The Gazprom Neft filling station network totals approximately 1448 filling stations throughout Russia and the CIS. The network’s extensive geographic range, coupled with the highly advantageous location of the company’s Omsk, Moscow and Yaroslavl refineries, continue to ensure Gazprom Neft’s leading position in the wholesale and retail markets of western Siberia and central Russia.
